This is one of the most popular bracelet blank sizes and metal that jewelry artisans use. It's long enough to fit most women's wrist sizes comfortably. It looks like a nice silver design but without the high price. It's used for hammering, stamping and engraving. Bulk order | Wholesale prices are available. Here are the details:
SIZE 1/2" x 6". The 6" length is most popular. Also available in 5", 5 1/2", 7" and 8". Use the selection drop down box.
USES Great for making bracelets, such as cuffs and bangles. Good for longer phrases where artisans will typically use two lines of words (see photo). Best size for added textures that really show, such as the ones shown in the additional example photos.
MATERIAL 1100 grade aluminum cut, 18 gauge. Often referred to as "food safe" which is an unofficial way of saying that this metal is a good source for use in jewelry making. It won't tarnish, feels light, and most people have no allergic reactions.
FINISHING This is a completely finished blank that's ready for your artisan work. The edges are de-burred and the corners are rounded so your finished product will have a nice and comfortable fit. We tumble the metal for a nice shine. This also gives it some additional flexibility and hardness. This is a high quality product, making it much less likely to crack and snap when you hammer, stamp or engrave.
PACKAGING These will be sent to you as flat strips so you can do whatever you want with them. Any plastic backing is removed during our treatment process. We package each blank so that they won't scratch during transit.
CRAFTING TOOLS A good 'ol hammer will do the trick if you want to simply hand hammer a texture design. The next step up would be a brass hammer for a more professional touch. You can also use a milling machine to add special textures like lace and flowers. Add words and other designs with metal stamps or an engraving machine. The metal is easy to bend into a bracelet but most artisans will use a bracelet bender or round metal pipe to get the exact desired bracelet shape.
